ProMotion is one of the most prominent features of the new iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max. Although it is not a new technology in the Apple world, until recently it was reserved for iPad Pro only. Consequently, its arrival to the new smartphones has caused a lot of expectation.

Manzana describes to ProMotion as a solution offering screen refresh rates up to 120 Hz for smoother, more natural scrolling, greater responsiveness and lower power consumption thanks to the automatic adjustment of the refresh rate based on the content displayed.

This definition is fine, but we are going to put it in context to understand the details of ProMotion and why it is so important that it arrives at the new iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, although rival terminals also have similar solutions for some time.

Apple’s ProMotion display technology has two pillars: screen refresh rate, also known as the refreshment rate, and the adaptive update technology.

The new iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max take a huge leap and double the refresh rate of their predecessors. That is, instead of refreshing the content displayed on the screen 60 times per second (60 Hz), now they do it 120 times per second (120 Hz). This gives a pleasant sensation to the human eye.
